Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Pipe. The International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain large diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe from Japan and certain small diameter carbon and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe from Japan and Romania would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The International Trade Commission will proceed with its own investigation to determine whether revocation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The orders will be extended for an additional five years if the ITC issues an affirmative determination but will be rescinded if the ITC issues a negative determination.

Chlorinated Isos. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of chlorinated isocyanurates from China for the period June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2011, after the Court of International Trade sustained its final second remand redetermination. As a result, the ITA has assigned  amended weighted-average dumping margins of 34.21 percent to Juangcheng Kangtai Chemical Co. Ltd. and 31.22 percent to Hebei Jiheng Chemical Co. Ltd. However, because there have been subsequent administrative reviews for these two companies the cash deposit rates will remain the rates established in the 2012-2013 final results, which are zero for both companies.

Steel Pipe. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, with respect to 20 companies based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review of those companies. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods from these companies at the CV cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Copper Pipe and Tube. The ITC determined on Nov. 15 that revocation of the AD duty orders on seamless refined copper pipe and tube from China and Mexico would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. Accordingly, the ITA has extended the orders for an additional five years.
